Juou of Mokujiki

Juou means ten rulers of the afterlife (who judge the dead and determine their placement in their next life). There are statues of Juou sculpted by Mokujiki in Juou-do in Kashiwazaki-shi Niigata Prefecture.

Seven of ten rulers are enshrined in Joou-do, and the other three statues are exhibited in Kashiwazaki city Museum.

In Juou-do, statue of Mokujiki is enshrined in addition to ten rulers. The smile makes us happier.
